Initiative Collects Unwanted Medications

KSP reports that the third national "Take Back" Initiative netted 804 pounds of prescription drugs from those who wished to discard unwanted medications. Each of the 16 KSP posts collected the drugs from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. on Saturday. The program, organized by the Drug Enforcement Administration, is intended to give people a safe and convenient way to part with unneeded medications.
